One Day At A Time
There are two days in every week that we should not worry about, two days that should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
1st is yesterday, with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the power in the world cannot bring back yesterday. We cannot undo a single act we performed nor can we erase a single word we’ve said for yesterday is gone!
The 2nd day we shouldn’t worry about is tomorrow with its impossible adversaries, its burden, its hopeful promise and poor performance. Tomorrow is beyond our control and tomorrow’s sun will rise either in splendour or behind a mask of clouds, however it will rise and until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow for it is yet unborn.
This leaves only one day – today. Any person can fight the battles of just one day it is only when we add the burdens of yesterday and tomorrow that we break down. It is not the experience of today that drives people to despair, it is the remorse of bitterness for something which happened yesterday and the dread of what tomorrow may bring.
So therefore . . . Live and enjoy one day at a time and that day is today.
